Uan-aa-Boa My assessment is that Conifer is a young region with a plenty of enthusiastic nations that shares our commitment to the environment as well as a commitment to human rights. They appear to have a functional system of government and have been stable since their recent establishment. They have a pretty slow RMB because they like to use Discord (?, but to each their own!). They just elected a new chancellor (Outer Cateland) and still have their original founder (Vyutsk).
Turbeaux Cool, but what I meant was could you, when the poll opens, post your assessment to the RMB as per 6.5 in the constitution. Apologies if I was unclear.
Uan-aa-Boa Sure, give Ruinenlust a bit of time and I will do that once a poll is started!
I notice Futaba Aoi's founder recently CTEd. There are only 6 nations left in the region. Do we want to continue keeping the embassy open in hopes that the founder will come back, or is it time to consider closing it?
Mount Seymour Sorry I missed this at the time. Anyway, it turns out the founder is back so I guess our earlier vote to keep the embassy stands. I agree that if it became a raided trophy region it would be time to think again.
Have you guys seen https://www.nationstates.net/region=arbor yet? Another one of those well government fledgling environmental regions. They still have quite a long time before they're eligible, but I think we should keep our eyes on it.
Areulder I had not heard of them but have now stationed a puppet there to observe the region.
Just noting for info that The Internationale appears to be refounding, with all but two nations temporarily removed to another region and the founding nation relocated to The Graveyard. It looks like a managed process around the founder deciding to leave the game, but I have no inside info.
Uan-aa-Boa Arbor is unremarkable (and not environmentally-oriented) so I am going to move my observation puppet over there!
EDIT: Actually, they are refounding over here: https://www.nationstates.net/region=grenada .
Turbeaux I think that's a temporary home prior to the founding of a new region called The Internationale . You have to move the last nations out of the old region so that it CTEs and then immediately found a new one before the fascists grab the name for a trophy. It has to be done carefully and at a surprise moment. Forest's constitution sets out how we would in theory go about the same thing if we needed to.
North Korea lost their name while attempting a refound a few years ago so the risk is real for a region that has enemies. After a few years of the new region by that name being a trophy the new founder repented for unknown reasons and gave their nation to NK's leader - that's why the founder account has a silly name rather than the region being run by Marxist-Feminists directly.
Uan-aa-Boa Interestingly, MF itself founded a new region to memorialize "the NationStates Left" and left NK to reside there. Here is the WFE:
Interred here are the founders and leaders of communist regions who made up the Nationstates Left from 2009 to present day as remembered by Marxist-Feminists"
I looked into it because I remembered that I have MF's card.
